During the autumn months and early winter, life at Deep Creek Lake slows down just a bit, but many of the favorite activities are still available to enjoy. The cooler temperatures and beautiful surroundings make fall a perfect time for a romantic getaway or a memorable family vacation. Autumn’s brilliant display of reds, yellows, and oranges is worth the visit alone. Boat rentals are available through early October, and the Autumn Glory Festival in mid-October is a favorite among visitors and locals. Enjoy fall hikes in the state parks, hay rides, farm tours, and hot apple cider. Golf is also available through the end of October at discounted rates. For the young at heart, Wisp Resort offers a wide array of fall activities, including zip line adventures, scenic chairlift rides, the mountain coaster, and more.
Enjoy a relaxing time spent with friends and loved ones in one of our cozy Deep Creek vacation homes, or get the whole family together for a Thanksgiving you’ll never forget. Cook your own dinner or visit Wisp Resort for a special Thanksgiving meal. And kick off ski season the next day, as the lifts tentatively start running at Wisp Resort on November 29, depending on snowfall.
